First cup of tea this morning, enjoyed on my way to work out of a classic red white and blue enamel mug.
This a medium-bodied, straightforward tea. It’s rare that I would add sweetener to a tea but this one begs for it, being named after a baked dessert treat. Looking forward to trying it with a kiss of sugar as I work my way through the box.
Notes are light fruit on the nose, a pleasant sweetness, and if you think hard about it a little bit of shortening which seems like pie crust. The body is pure black tea, as expected. There is some tannin on the finish which lingers, alongside the persistent fruit. I actually don’t get a lot of cinnamon, as some other reviewers did. Which is good, nothing to take away from the mild fruity notes.
It’s a pleasant tea, not overdone. I would drink it again (and will since I got a box for free!)
The Caffeine is present, making this a great morning or afternoon pick me up that takes well to milk or sugar.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Fruity, Pastries, Peach, Tannin
